Description msiddiqu 2019-03-28 10:22:57 UTC
When a new protocol handler is registered, the API accepts a title argument which can be used to mislead users about which domain is registering the new protocol. This may result in the user approving a protocol handler that they otherwise would not have. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 63.
